Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Tottenham?

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional charges should be reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements ought to be defined on your conveyancing quote

Q.

Which local authority looks after Tottenham?

A.

Tottenham is located in London Borough of Haringey Council, Civic Centre, High Road, Wood Green, London, N22 8LE, Call: 020 8489 0002

Q.

Do we need to employ a solicitor suggested by our local agent?

A.

An agent will push a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Does your lawyer in Tottenham get any conveyancing searches on the London Victorian mid terrace bungalow I want to buy?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage the building society of bank mandates a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and occasionally less common searches, which might include Development reports.

Q.

I am buying a residence in the parish of St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Tottenham's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

How much will our searches be?

A.

The cost of searches varies considerably, depending on the particular searches ordered. Common searches include a local authority search and an environmental search.

Q.

Is it a bad idea to avoid paying out for stamp duty in Tottenham?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is due for property priced at over £125,000. We do not advise buyers arrange any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are costly and very risky.

Q.

Would getting a survey be sensible when purchasing property?

A.

It is firmly advised that the majority of purchasers in Tottenham book a RICS survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that will impact a property, for example poor ventilation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.
